"The insurgents used to attack communities early on the morning. Those who can run, do"
“The insurgents used to attack communities early on the morning. Those who can run, do. However, elderly people could not move so they stayed and were slaughtered. At that time, it was difficult to get food and water.” Recalls Saide.
“Since my husband died, there is nobody to take care of me and my family. One year ago, a man approached me to ask if I wanted to become his wife. I could not stand the loneliness, the situation was too difficult, so I agreed but he is only coming back home to sleep and do not earn any income to feed us.” The means to survive are scarce and the population rely on the relief that organizations provide. Our team identified Saide and her family as an extremely vulnerable household; she joined a cash transfer program as well as the Porridge Mums group.
